With all the noise, hot air and nonsense over the last year, it is no surprise that folks might now know what the recently passed healthcare legislation actually includes. A couple of resources that might help: this one summarizes key points of the bill, and this one shows a timeline to implementation.
To give you a sense of what to expect in the next 6 months:
--Access to insurance for uninsured patients with pre-existing conditions.
--Small business tax credits.
--$250 rebates for seniors in the Medicare Part D donut hole (no drug coverage).
--Eliminating pre-existing condition restrictions for children.
--Prohibiting recissions (when insurance companies take back a policy you bought).
--Eliminating lifetime limits.
--Regulating use of annual limits on insurance.
Honestly, not a bad 6-9 months' work.
